Leona Lewis has said that her homecoming Hackney gig at his year’s Radio 1 Weekend is a “huge deal”.

The X Factor star is to open the event on June 23 on Hackney Marshes with the gig headlined by Jay-Z and Rihanna.

Leona told Metro: “I’ve not really done a gig as big as this.

“It’s a huge deal for me. A lot of friends and family can come and see it.”

Asked about a possible collaboration with Rihanna, she added: “We’d have to vibe it and see where it goes and if we’d both be up for it – she’s an amazing artist.”

Lewis is taking part in the BBC Radio 1 and Radio 1 Xtra Academy to inspire young people.

She said: “This will affect the young people. For some, the outlook is not the best.

“Hopefully, people will be part of the Academy or see something inspiring at the show.”

The Academy runs from June 1 to June 22 and will feature input from Labrinth, Dizzee Rascal, Rizzle Kicks, Paloma Faith, Riz Ahmed, Levi Roots, and Trevor Nelson.

Meanwhile, Lewis told the Evening Standard: “I am from Hackney and grew up here and wanted to be involved and give back to the community.

“Everything boils down to money – there is not enough money for education or community groups.

“A lot of important groups are being shut down. This is to give young people an opportunity, to show them that people care and they are not going to be left behind.”
