Ashley Cain and Safiyya throw epic party to celebrate Azaylia with break dancing, huge flower displays and fireworks
ASHLEY Cain and his partner Safiyya Vorajee threw an epic party last night to celebrate the life of their daughter Azaylia following her funeral.
The devastated couple were joined by family and friends as they said their final goodbye to their girl with a wake to remember, featuring fireworks, huge floral displays and stunning balloons.
The daughter of former Coventry City footballer and Ex On The Beach star Ashley Cain passed away last month at just eight months old after suffering from an aggressive form of leukaemia.
Images and videos from inside the party show the family coming together once again to remember Azaylia and create wonderful memories out of such dark times.
Ashley was seen relaxing for the first time in weeks as he danced with friends and even cracked out ‘the worm’ at one point.
They held the party in a huge marquee decorated with a series of stunning balloons arches and flowers everywhere.
A steel band played to welcome the guests in as they partied late into the evening.
The evening ended with an incredible fireworks display as the music from the Lion King played – music which the little girl loved.
The guests, who were dressed in black but with orange touches, shouted ‘lets go champ’ as the festivities closed.
Yesterday saw hundreds of well-wishers line the streets for Azaylia’s funeral in her hometown of Nuneaton, Warwickshire.
Ashley and Safiyya had invited mourners to pay their respects to their daughter on the pre-arranged route of a cortege on Friday morning.
Among floral tributes in a hearse which accompanied a horse-drawn white carriage carrying Azaylia's coffin was one spelling out her name.
Writing on Instagram last week, Ashley said: "We would like to thank everyone for their prayers, words of sympathy & patience over the last few weeks, while we come to terms with the loss of Azaylia.
"We have been incredibly moved by the support we have received far and wide and all the beautiful gestures of kindness will live in hearts forever."
Many of those lining the route on Friday applauded as the hearse passed by, and orange ribbons had been tied to nearby railings.
A fundraiser to try to help save Azaylia's life through specialist cancer treatment had reached more than £1.5 million by the time she died.
Buildings and famous sites around the world, including Niagara Falls, were lit up in orange last month in support of Azaylia, and to raise awareness of acute myeloid leukaemia.
