In Fortnite Lil Kev is a bonus Back Bling that followed on the end of the Fortnitemares event.
You unlock it by completing Lil Kev Challenges, which includes playing a certain amount of matches and other activities. As long as you log in by a certain date on Monday, you have until before the Lil Kev end date to get it.
Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. There are, however, other Fortnite Challenges as part of Fortnite Season 7, including Chilly Gnome locations and giant rock man, a crowned tomato, and an encircled tree location. Other new additions include Fortnite plane locations and Snowfall secret Battle Star locations.

- Play 15 Matches (reward - 500 XP)

How did Lil Kev arrive in Fortnite?
The Lil Kev event began in Season 6 when Fortnitemares ended.
Developer Fortnite invited players to observe an in-game event, which saw the destruction of Kevin, the purple cube that has stalked the game's map since Season 5.

After the event ended, Kevin (the cube) disappeared, and the Lil Kevs appeared for players to unlock.
