Director of Fugees "Killing Me Softly" Charged With Raping & Beating 5 of His Daughters!

Aswad Ayinde, director, who directed the Fugees "Killing Me Softly" music video in 1996 has been charged with  aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, lewdness, child endangerment, aggravated criminal sexual contact and criminal sexual contact, all charges in reference to the raping and beating he did to five of his daughters. Not only that Ayinde has fathered six children by his daughters, between the mid 1980’s and 2002.

According to the Associated Press, the ex-wife of the 51-year-old man appeared in court and testified against him in a pre-trial saying that he wanted to create "pure" family bloodline by impregnating several of his teenage daughters.

It was reported that Ayinde believed the world was coming to an end, he and his offspring would be the chosen ones to remain and he wanted to create a "PURE" bloodline by impregnating his teenage daughters. The Associated Press also reports that the mother testified in court that some of the babies were delivered at home and never received birth certificates. She also said there were at least two instances where the babies who died in the home were buried without authorities being notified.

When asked why she didn’t try to stop him, the wife said,

“I was afraid to ever accuse him of being demented, or being a pedophile. I knew the word but I wouldn’t dare use it because it would result in a beating.”

Via Bossip.com-Prosecutors say the man beat the girls who were isolated from the outside world and home schooled, with wooden boards and steel-toed boots.

My heart goes out to the children of the family….and even though the wife may have ben shook by her husband I think they need to hold he accountable too. What type of "mother" could stand to allow this type of torture on her children for almost 20 years? Scared of a beating or not, there are still numerous of precautions that could have been taken to protect the lives of her daughter’s and the lies of the two infants that passed in their home.

Although Ayinde was originally arrested in 2006 for these charges he will go on trail in April. Aswad Ayinde will stand trial five times, once for each daughter police he say raped, beat and sometimes impregnated.
