Fugees Director Jailed For Having Kids With His Daughters


Award-winning music video director Aswad Ayinde, 55, is currently on trial for raping his daughters, resulting in six children. He was first convicted in 2011 of raping one of his six daughters, which lead to a ruling of 40 years behind bars. He received his second conviction for raping a separate daughter and was sentenced to an additional 50 years in prison, now bringing his sentence to 90 years in total. This is only the second of five trials for Aswad Ayinde involving the sexual abuse of his daughters.

According to the DailyMail, Ayinde began raping a number of his daughters, the youngest starting at 8 years old. The acts continued over the course of some 30 years, until he and his wife, Beverly Ayinde, went their separate ways.

Beverly Ayinde, former wife of Aswad, reported to jurors that her husband “equaled himself to being a prophet” and to “create a ‘pure family bloodline” with is daughters.

“As time went on, he was god-like. I had to call him, ‘my god.’ He equated himself to Jesus Christ … He would sit us all down and lecture us about his greatness and his power … At another point, he equated himself to Prince and Michael Jackson.”

Ayinde, née Charles McGill, directed The Fugees’ “Killing Me Softly” video, which won Best R&B Video at the 1996 MTV Music Video Awards.
