Aswad Ayinde (pictured) , the New Jersey father who stands accused of raping and impregnating three of his five daughters when they were all minors, is currently facing his second of five jury trials. In this proceeding, the 54-year-old is charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault, and two counts of sexual assault. His former spouse, Beverly Ayinde, testified at Tuesday’s trial to, again, speak about the horrors that went on in their home for over 17 years, reports NorthJersey.com.
Ayinde, whose actual name is Charles McGill, directed the R&B group, the Fugees’, “Killing Me Softly” video. Beverly described her ex as a kind of brutal Svengali who tried to control everyone in the household under a reign of terror. She told jurors that Ayinde “equaled himself to being a prophet.” The woman went on to describe her statement in more detail: “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.”
According to Beverly, Ayinde, who has been often referred to as a “calculating and cunning pedophile,” had a twisted vision of creating a master race of pure-blooded children by impregnating them.
The mother of five also told the courtroom that she should have foreseen one of her daughter’s pregnancy. In a disturbing account, Beverly testified that her former husband, who walked around the home naked and allegedly sodomized one daughter over 100 times, had informed her in an almost surreal way that he needed to perform oral sex on one of their daughters who was 8-years-old at the time.
“I was shocked. I said ‘What are you talking about?’ He tried to present it in this very godly, spiritual way,” she stated.
Beverly then went on to recount how, with the birth of each of their children, Ayinde became increasingly physically and mentally abusive to everyone in the home. The woman told jurors that Ayinde, who did not have faith in doctors, actually delivered their last three children himself without being medically supervised.
The children were also home-schooled but according to Beverly their curriculum was not approved by any board of education.
There were obscene forms of torture that Beverly claims she and the children were forced to bear. “He threatened he would kill my children. He would cut them up and put them in different places and I wouldn’t be able to prove anything because I didn’t have a birth certificate for any of them,” Beverly lamented. When the woman was questioned as to why she could not pick up the phone and report her husband’s cruelty, she responded by stating, “The way things were in the house, I couldn’t just do something,” she said, still crying. “There would be hell to pay.”
Ayinde’s den of iniquity finally came to a halt when one of his daughters summoned up the courage to contact police in 2006; she was 19-years-old. The unnamed woman, who is now 22-years-old, informed police investigators about her house of horrors and how she got pregnant by her dad and gave birth at age 15. She told them how she and her two other sisters bore their father a total of six children.
Ayinde is currently serving 40 years in prison after being convicted on all counts of molesting one of his daughters from about age 8 until she bore his child as a teenager.

9. Apparently my 260lbs is too much for the actual vines in the Hawaiian jungles to hold me without breaking and me falling hundreds of feet. So for safety purposes, I'm forced to swing thru #Jumanjj on wires strong enough to hold 12 adult buffaloes and 1 adult Rock. #OnSet #Jumanji #IronicallyIEatBuffaloDailyForLunch #MoreManThanNatureKnowsWhatToDoWith
