Ireland’s music scene is known for its rich heritage and vibrant culture. But, like any artistic landscape, it constantly needs fresh voices to keep it alive and evolving. In the heart of this thriving scene, a dynamic trio of entrepreneurs is on a mission to bring a new wave of Irish talent to the forefront. They go by the names Olly Gazal, B Sibs, and John Madu, and their latest project, “On The Map Freestyle,” is set to change the game.
A Passion for Music Transformed into Entrepreneurial Excellence
Brendan Sibanda, known by his stage name B Sibs, is one of the driving forces behind “On The Map Freestyle.” His journey into the music world began with a simple, yet profound, love for music. “I love music and everything about it,” he says. “If I had to work as something for the rest of my life, it would have to do with music. I see music as art, and I can appreciate every aspect of that.”
But Brendan’s love for music didn’t stop at just being a fan. He transformed it into a passion for building a massive music company and platform. As an entrepreneur, he presented and promoted artists from various places, giving them the exposure needed to thrive in their careers. It was a journey that required creativity, innovation, and marketing prowess.

The Birth of “On The Map”
“Our music business primarily operates on YouTube,” Brendan explains, “where we upload music from different artists.” But what sets “On The Map Freestyle” apart is its unique approach to showcasing talent. They created a platform called “On The Map” on their channel, representing artists from their respective towns. Brendan personally handpicked the artists and insisted on shooting their videos in their hometowns. “I wanted to create a connection between the artist and their roots,” he emphasizes.
This attention to detail even extended to the project’s name, “On The Map.” In the intro of the videos, artists are introduced, including their stage name and the town they’re in. Brendan’s stage name, B Sibs, is also mentioned, adding a personal touch that resonates with the audience.
The Power of Collaboration
But Brendan doesn’t take all the credit. “I want to give a shoutout to my amazing business partner, Olly Gazal!” he exclaims. Together, they formed a dynamic duo that conquered the music market. Olly excelled in the business and marketing side, while Brendan brought his creative and marketing skills to the table. Together, they made a powerful team.
A Movement Ignites
“At the heart of Ireland’s thriving music scene, a movement is underway,” Brendan says with passion. “It’s a movement that’s revolutionizing how young talent is discovered, celebrated, and uplifted.” This movement is “On The Map Freestyle,” and it’s igniting a fire of creativity and passion throughout the country.
Unveiling Hidden Gems
“On The Map Freestyle” is not just about promoting individual artists; it’s about discovering hidden gems throughout Ireland. It travels to different counties and places, shining a spotlight on artists and giving them a chance to flourish on a national stage. “We’re putting Ireland’s talented artists firmly on the charts,” Brendan emphasizes. “We want them to be known and celebrated in their hometowns, all while preserving and uplifting the rich Irish culture.”
A Bright Future for Irish Music
The impact of “On The Map Freestyle” goes beyond the music industry. It resonates with Irish culture and heritage, reminding the world of the nation’s artistic prowess. “We’re not just finding talent,” Brendan says proudly. “We’re preserving and celebrating what makes Ireland’s music scene unique.”
As Ollys TV continues to grow and expand its reach, “On The Map Freestyle” promises to keep changing the game. It’s a transformative journey that’s paving the way for the next generation of music stars in Ireland. “Let’s join hands,” Brendan concludes, “and celebrate the beauty of music and the rich Irish talent that continues to shine brightly on the map.”
The “On The Map Freestyle” project is a testament to the power of passion, creativity, and collaboration. It’s a reminder that with dedication and a love for art, entrepreneurs like Brendan Sibanda (B Sibs), Olly Gazal, and John Madu can redefine an entire industry while preserving the essence of their culture.
