Note: syc·o·phant (s k -f nt, s k -). n. A servile self-seeker who attempts to win favor by flattering influential people. Gurfateh, Most of the Kirtan that we hear in Gurdwaras and on T.V. is in praise of Waheguru. I don"t think God would be very pleased hearing His praises day-in and day-out. I believe that more stress should be on those Shabads from SGGS which teach us how to improve our life and help to create a better society. Just singing praises of the All-Mighty will not metamorphose us into better human-beings.
