Voices - Phillip Addo

Crucify him!
                          Yeis! Crutipy him!
            Don’t live `im!
Clucify him!
               He be villain! Crushify him!
              No! Do not crucify him!
             I know Him!
             Truly! Truly!! I know him!

He was an honest man
I am not saying it for fun
He was a man of vision
He was not caught with indecision
He was a man of gentility
He spoke with humility
He was not a pastor
But his sermon was louder
He was a man of peace
His memory should never cease
Do not crucify him! Hail him!
Let the fontomfrom sound his name loud
Because he has made us proud.

Philip, be clear! Who are the people in the first part of the voices? And who is the "konkonsa" in the second part.
Anyway, I am asking the questions for fun. Kudos anyway for the great work.
