Aswad Ayinde, director of Fugees video 'Killing Me Softly', jailed for impregnating daughters

The award-winning video director was unmasked Thursday as a brutal, bizarre serial breeder who repeatedly raped his daughters to create a "pure" bloodline. Today he was told he'll be locked away for 90 years (just?).

Aswad Ayinde aka Charles McGill
Aswad Ayinde, who won an MTV award for directing The Fugees' "Killing Me Softly," fathered six kids with his daughters from the mid-1980s to 2002 - and delivered the babies himself, New Jersey prosecutors said.

Many of the rapes took place in  an abandoned funeral home. He even delivered the babies himself in a bid to keep his depraved plot secret.Ayinde, 55, fathered six children with his daughters from the  mid-1980s until 2002. He also had nine children with his former wife,  Beverly, and amother three with two other women in Brooklyn, according  to court documents.Reporting on his conviction, a reporter said: As Aswad Ayinde’s daughter stood up to speak, the judge ordered him  to put down the court papers he was hunched over and face the daughter  he had assaulted and raped since she was 8 years old, fathering her four children.

“I can’t describe how much you hurt me and my sisters,” the daughter, now 35, said Friday to her father, shackled in a prison jumpsuit, his  head still bowed, eyes never once meeting hers.As the woman rehashed the horrors her father inflicted on her and her sisters in Paterson, Ayinde burst out, “You should’ve told the truth  instead of lying,” bringing an admonishment from Superior Court Judge  Raymond Reddin, who told him that not only did he believe the daughter’s testimony, but also so did the 12 jurors who convicted him.Ultimately, the daughter said she forgave her father and hoped at some time he’d repent.“But obviously, with your head down like that, you do not  understand,” she said, three of her sisters fighting tears in the  courtroom pews.After the daughter finished, Reddin on Friday tacked on 50 years to  the 40-year prison sentence Ayinde, 54, received in 2010 after being  convicted of raping another of his daughters, who bore a fifth child.


The former music producer and self-proclaimed prophet faces three  more trials for allegedly sexually assaulting three other daughters  after requesting separate trials.Prosecutors have said that Ayinde dominated his children as a  god-like prophet who wanted to create a race that carried his pure  bloodline. Over the years, he molested five of his seven daughters and  fathered six children, the family and their attorney said.By about 2001, the family had mostly split up, Ayinde “bouncing  around,” but still in reach of his family, the daughter said. In 2003,  he tried to rape her for the last time.“That was it. … I just felt stronger,” she said.Yet, it wasn’t until she and her sisters learned that Ayinde had  fathered more children with other women that they decided to go to the  authorities in 2006.“We found out we had other siblings, young siblings, and we had to  put him to a stop,” the daughter said after the sentencing hearing.
