Abdul Chestnut born in Philadelphia, comes from a Family rich in musical talent. It subsequently led him to starting his own company (Abdul Entertainment) in 1999.
His company's first 2 projects were New Beginning Full Gospel Baptist Church's CD entitled (“With My Whole Heart” by Bishop James H. Morton).
In 2000, He was approached by the late Dirk Chaney to assist him with the retail marketing & promotions of his project, Dirk Chaney & The Chosen Aggregation (“God is Great”).
Minister Chaney saw something in the gifted 26 year-old and told him that he had a “natural gift” in this field and encouraged him to make a career out of it. From the success of those 2 projects and the relationships that were developed, he was able to start his own independent record label.
In January 2001, Abdul Entertainment released its first project La’Trese (self-entitled). It was a marvelous collection of neo-soul, R&B/Hip-Hop that was well received in the local Philadelphia area and several international markets.
In January 2003, following the elections, the rising gas prices, the unstable economic state our country was in, the reduction of funding for social services programs, the removal of arts and music from school curriculum, the closing of libraries and recreation centers across the country; AE released its second project titled “Peace Suite” by The Chestnut Brothers, an EP featuring a collage of inspirational r&b/contemporary gospel songs. Several of which, were/are used as anthems for a plethora of anti-violence and social consciousness organizations that fight for change, equality, human rights and justice.
The highlight of the record is the song “Travelin’ On” which was heralded as the best “dance” record of the year in the U.K., Europe & Japans’ underground markets. Due to ever increasing poverty, crime and unemployment affecting our nation, The Chestnut Brothers will be re-releasing the CD domestically in early 2007. Under the banner of “We’ve Had Enuff- It’s Time For A Change,” they are now being hailed as “The Musical Voice For A New America.”
In August 2003, Abdul Entertainment started an outreach ministry/community relations division called The “Save Our Children” Campaign. It was an initiative to provide programs for neighborhood youth in Philadelphia. Ultimately, The Campaign ended up producing 27 events. Founder Abdul Chestnut was acknowledged as one of the youngest and most prolific community activist in Philadelphia's history.
In 2006, he relocated back to Atlanta and has subsequently launched his own worldwide streaming platform called AEMG TV.
He prides his self on being a pioneer and innovator for the musical future and will continue to set a standard for good, clean and wholesome entertainment.
