Fugees Video Director Charged With Impregnating Daughters

The director of The Fugees’ MTV award winning music video for “Killing me Softly With his Song” was accused on Thursday (March 12) of raping and impregnating his daughters in order to create a “pure” blood line.

According to New York’s Daily News, Aswad Ayinde is being held on $1 million bond and facing 27 charges, including aggravated sexual assault, lewdness, child endangerment, sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual contact, and criminal sexual contact.

He is believed to have fathered six children with his daughters since the 1980s. Ayinde also has nine children with his ex-wife and at least three more by two other women. He will undergo a separate trial for each of the five children he allegedly molested.

The Daily News spoke to a one of Ayinde’s teenage daughters about the accusations. ”It’s a painful thing,” she said. “It’s not something we’re going to talk about outside of our family. The truth is coming out now, after a long time. That’s it.”

As of press time there was no comments made by any of the former Fugees members about the case. Stay tuned to XXLMag.com for updates on the story. —Brooklyne Gipson

    really…where the fuk do these ppl come from

  • job12

    hey, maybe his daughters were fly?


    @job12: you’re a loser.

    this isn’t funny at all. when i was 17 i dated a girl who was molested by her father and i watched a beautiful, smart girl with a bright future ahead of her throw it all away to defend him. this shit makes me wanna vomit and spit flames. worst part is that this fool actually thought if he impregnated his daughters that he would keep a “pure” blood line…wow. GET EDUCATED. GET HELP. GET GOD.

  • gucciboo

    This has to be the most fucked up shit Ive heard in a long time. This nigga need to have his dick chopped off and shoved up his ass. On top of that they show the picture of Wyclef on the story so dumb fuckers who dont know may associate him with this bullshit.

  • Father AL

    “On top of that they show the picture of Wyclef on the story so dumb fuckers who dont know may associate him with this bullshit”

    ^ Anslem he is right…

    And on another note, to play devil’s advocate, and not advocating this scenario, but other cultures on this planet believe in this type of stuff.

    Know your history before you reply emotionally…

    • Anonymous

      Yeah in some cultures they do feel that it is okay but when you live in America it still isnt cool and is illegal.

  • Face Phoenix

    This is a disturbing trend that is not often talked about amongst our community and should be addressed more often rather than quietly ignored. I am glad that XXL mention this because more and more young women blame themselves for these perversions when they are merely victims. It’s sad to see and hear off but it should be exposed so we can protect the powerless and prosecute the predators hiding amongst us.

  • Kid Cudder

    That is fucked up. This guy is going to get whats coming to him when he gets locked up though. Inmates hate that kind of shit.

    and XXL, why the hell would you put a picture of the Fugees? They aren’t associated with this story besides the video. Take that shit off.

  • Chris

    The easiest way to go to hell is to impregnate your own daughter….


  • Peej

    whhaaat!? how messed up… empty a clip on his head and be done with the sick fuck!

  • caino

    Man, thats messed up!

    You gotta questin what the mothers were doing when all this was going on? or what Social Workers or Social services were doing ……it raises a lotta questions!

  • chacho

    Yeah Caino ummm just watch Precious and basically youll see what social services and the mothers were probably not doing at that time.

  • Gift


  • illest

    I agree with the above that the Fugees pic needs to be removed. You can probably take out their name from the headline while youre at it and leave it as “video director”. that’s pretty shady…

    These products are detailed from minimum to most pricey. Willow Tree is traditional very simple elegance. Williraye is distinctly ornament and wonderful. Aspects is wonderfully common. Woodland Driftwood is pretty distinctive simply because the figures are carved out of true driftwood. You can pick from hundreds far more as well.Nutcrackers for Christmas
