A Christian Marketing and Promotions Company
Meet our Founder
Connector, servant, promoter, evangelist and Brother in Christ. These are just a few words that describe Shawn Hay also known as Shawn Papi, founder of the Hey Papi Promotions Network.
With over 15 years experience in promoting events and participating in community service activities all over the country and experience traveling all over the world, Shawn has made many relationships and is a great connector of people.
Since 1994, Shawn has been well known for promoting nightclubs, college parties, community activities and celebrity rapper events. During this time Shawn became one of the top promoters in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC metropolitan area.
On New Year's Eve 1999, Shawn heard is calling from the Lord to give up his secular promoting and to use his God given gift to spread the Gospel through promotions and entertainment serving God.
Within a short period of time, Shawn established a Christian Marketing & Promotions Company called Hey Papi Promotions. He decided to keep the old secular name Hey Papi Promotions because he wanted it to be a testimony to show others that they can change from a worldly lifestyle to one that praises Jesus Christ.
In 2008, he established the Hey Papi Promotions Network, a Christian, faith-based social network website. The Hey Papi Promotions Network was created to keep people updated of Christian, faith-based events and community service activities across the world. The Hey Papi Promotions Network is centered around a community of professional people that are Pastors, Ministers, Entrepreneurs, Promoters, Gospel Artists and Media.
In addition to his entrepreneurial endeavors, he has received many community service accolades including being awarded the Radio One 93.9 WKYS Young African American Top 30 Under 30 of Washington DC-Maryland-Virginia, nominated for top 100 Minority Business Enterprise, International Worship Center Partner of the Year, a celebrity guest judge for Sheila Stewart's Annual High School Gospel Choir Competition, and Sasha Bruce Youthwork's College Tour Info Night in conjunction with Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Certificate of Appreciation.
He has promoted and sponsored major events such as the Red Zone National Men's Conference, Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival Gospel Matinee featuring Kirk Whalum & Kim Burrell, Praize In The City, Richard Smallwood Life Time Achievement Awards, St. Jude Hospital Fundraiser Radio-thon, First Baptist Church of Glenarden & Greater Mt.
