'Charles McGill'
Aswad Ayinde, hides his face with a piece of paper during his sentencing at Passaic County Courthouse in Paterson, on Friday. According to the NYPost, he received a 50 years prison term after being found guilty of raping his daughter.

The man behind one of the most iconic R&B music videos of all time will spend the rest of his life behind bars after he was found guilty of trying to create "pure" blood lines by siring six children with his own daughter.

Aswad Ayinde, 55, of Paterson, NJ was sentenced to 50 years behind bars for sexually assaulting his daughter which will be tacked onto the 40 he is already serving for sexually assaulting another one of his daughters, according to NBC New York.

In March Ayinde was convicted of multiple charges in relation to his second daughter who he had sex with when she was between the ages of 8 and 22, impregnating four times.

Ayinde, who also goes by the name Charles McGill, is best known as the director of the music video for the Fugees' classic "Killing me Softly" which won "Best R&B Video" at the 1996 MTV Music Video Awards.
