In a video on ABN TV, the 33-year-old disclosed that his leg was amputated a few years ago from the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) after he developed a health condition.
It was a development that left him depending on crutches to move around and led to the collapse of his marriage.
This is due to the fact that his wife found it hard to accept him the way he was, so she went away and abandoned him with their two children.
When she walked out on him in the hour of need, Chikosa became so bitter that he lost all his trust in women.
