An award-winning video director repeatedly raped his daughters to create a 'pure' bloodline that would survive Doomsday, a court has heard.
Aswad Ayinde, who won an MTV award for directing The Fugees' 'Killing Me Softly' [good song, always found the video to be very boring personally], fathered six children with his daughters from the mid-1980s until 2002, New Jersey prosecutors said.
Many of the rapes took place in an abandoned funeral home. He even delivered the babies himself in a bid to keep his depraved plot secret.
Ayinde, 51, also had nine children with his former wife, Beverly, and amother three with two other women in Brooklyn, according to court documents.
Testifying at a pre-trial hearing in New Jersey, Beverly Ayinde said: 'He said the world was going to end, and it was just going to be him and his offspring and that he was chosen.'
Ayinde, also known as Charles McGill, faces the first of five trials next month - one for each daughter he allegedly abused, said prosecutor Lisa Squitieri.
The video director faces 27 charges including aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, lewdness, child endangerment, aggravated criminal sexual contact and criminal sexual contact.
A young woman who said Ayinde was her father answered the door at the home but refused to talk about the case.
She told the New York Daily News: 'It's a painful thing. 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.'
Joseph Del Russo, a prosecutor, said: ‘The witnesses’ statements describe a depraved parent with a Messianic complex.’
Some of the children produced through the incestuous unions suffer health problems.
Mr Ayinde, who also describes himself as a soft-drink entrepreneur, eluded child welfare investigators by moving from town to town in New Jersey and Florida from 1985 to 2002.
The case echoes that of Austrian rapist Josef Fritzl who secretly kept his daughter captive in his cellar for 24 years, fathering seven children.
Ayinde allegedly beat his children with boards and kicked them with steel-capped boots to stop them speaking about the rapes.
Many of the alleged rapes took place when the family was living in an abandoned funeral home in Paterson, New Jersey.
Mr Ayinde reportedly renovated a room for himself but forced the rest of his family to live in the dilapidated portion of the building.
Two babies, while those that survived never obtained birth certificates and were home-schooled.
Mrs Ayinde, who had nine children with her husband, said: ‘He was having regular relationships with all the girls. I wasn’t fighting back. I was afraid to fight back.
‘I was afraid to ever accuse him of being demented or being a paedophile. I knew the word, but I wouldn’t dare use it because it would result in a beating.’
At his ex-wife’s home in New Jersey, a young woman who said Ayinde was her father told the New York Daily News.
‘It's a painful thing. 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.’
Mr Ayinde was arrested in 2006 and has been held on a $1million (£660,000) bond after arriving for a hearing with a woman and child despite a ban on contact with children.
