Fugees Director Gets Sentenced

Aswad Ayinde, director of The Fugees' "Killing Me Softly" video, was sentenced to 50 years in prison for sexual assault this past week, according to The NY Daily News. The current sentence will be added to the 40-year sentence Ayinde received last year for similar charges regarding the sexual abuse of his daughters.
Ayinde fathered six children with his daughters over several years, performing the deliveries himself and burying children that didn't survive.
He was convicted of abusing his now-35 year old daughter repeatedly from the time she was 8. “I can’t describe how much you hurt me and my sisters,” his daughter said in court.
His ex-wife testified in 2010 that he believed the world was going to end. "He said the world was going to end, and it was just going to be him and his offspring and that he was chosen," she said at a pre-trial hearing.
