July 29, 2013 – Aswad Ayinde, Nigerian Music Director Who Impregnated His Daughter 6 Times Jailed For 90 Years
A US-based Grammy award winner and the director of the popular Killing me softly song is set to spend the rest of his life in jail.
His sentence followed the case of incest and rape he inflicted on his own daughter.
55-year-old Aswad Ayinde was sentenced to 90 years in jail for impregnating his daughters.
On Friday, the 55-year-old Nigerian music producer based in Paterson, New Jersey was sentenced to 50 years in prison. He was found guilty of repeatedly raping his 6 daughters which resulted in 6 children being fathered by him.
According to court records, he also fathered 12 kids with 3 other women.
Aswad Ayinde in this latest trial was found guilty of raping one of his daughters when she was 8-year-old.
In 2011, he allegedly assaulted another daughter which added 40 years to his sentence making it 90 years.
Aswad Ayinde became popular after directing Fugees 96 hit song, Killing Me Softly.
He claims he was trying to create a pure family bloodline by impregnating his own daughters.
In another disturbing disclosure, Ayinde said the world was going to end and it was just going to be him and his offspring and that he was chosen.
In this latest trial, it was revealed that Mr. Ayinde began having intercourse with his second daughter from the time she was eight-years-old, impregnating her four times.
The sexual assaults happened for almost 30 years until Mr. Ayinde and his wife separated, officials said. They occurred in numerous homes across northern New Jersey, even while the family was under watch of state child welfare officials, according to NBC New York. Some of the rapes even took place in an abandoned funeral home.
The family moving as far away as Florida to avoid investigation after case workers removed multiple children from the Ayinde household in 2000, resulting in Mr. Ayinde being arrested for kidnapping for trying to take them from state custody in a medical centre, NBC New York reported.
He pleaded guilty to lesser charges and received a year’s probation – as he continued raping one daughter for at least another two years, according to officials.
The depraved father also beat and starved the girls using wooden boards and steel-toed boots for even ‘minor transgressions,’ Ayinde’s wife testified at the first trial.
Some of the children Ayinde fathered with his daughters were born in the home, with at least two babies who died in the home having been buried without notifying authorities or obtaining birth certificates, NBC New York reported.
Ayinde’s tortured daughters were home schooled and isolated from other children, so as to keep the family secrets hidden, the station added.
With his wife too afraid to confront him, Mr. Ayinde carried out his evil plan without hindrance even while directing the music video for the Fugees 1996 breakout hit Killing Me Softly, for which he won ‘Best R&B Video’ at the 1996 MTV Music Video Awards.
He is currently facing more trials for 3 different cases.
Lord have mercy what was he thinking.
Is this guy ok? How can a sane man do this to his blood daughters?
