Papy signed on 25 December 2008 for Trabzonspor, coming from AS Inter Star a football club based in Bujumbura.
Sports magazine Goal.com suggested Papy as one of the 10 African Players to Watch in 2009.
On 24 June 2009 Papy was loaned out to MVV. On 5 January 2011 Trabzonspor released the Burundian midfielder by mutual consent making him a free agent.
Papy represented the Burundi national football team; he made his debut on the first of June in 2008 in a game against the Seychelles national football team.
Papy, who was reported to have had a heart condition, collapsed and died on 25 April 2019 while playing a match in Eswatini for Malanti Chiefs F.C.
Social media has been flooded with tributes to Burundi international Faty Papy, who collapsed during a game between his Eswatini side Malanti Chiefs and Green Mamba.
Prior to Thursday’s collapse, Faty was said to be battling a heart condition and had his stay with Bidvest Wits cut short due to his health issues.
The former Trabzonspor player played a part in Burundi’s qualification for their maiden Africa Cup of Nations berth in Egypt.
However, the sudden demise comes as a shock to the footballing world across the continent with the 2019 Afcon less than two months away.
The Burundi international has sadly passed away at the age of 28.
I would like to extend my deepest condolences to his family and friends during this difficult period. #RIP Papy Faty ??

Papy Faty was the guy who unintentionally injured me the first time I injured my knee in a Telkom QF vs Wits when I was only 23, I remember him messaging me after the game apologizing, wishing me all the best & said he will pray for me.
