Why Wiz Khalifa chose the moniker
While Wiz Khalifa was writing songs as a teenager, he adopted several variations of his stage name before deciding on Wiz Khalifa. “Khalifa” means successor in Arabic, while the “Wiz” came from “Wisdom”.
Speaking about how he came about his stage name, Wiz Khalifa said:
“When I first started rapping, my uncle’s name was “Knowledge” and we were all in a group. I wanted to make a name that was sort of like his so I chose Wisdom.

Amber Rose, who was formerly involved with Ye (Kanye West) announced her relationship with Wiz Khalifa in 2011 when she tweeted:

“Wiz will always be my best friend, fore. We’re best friends. It’s kind of weird, because it’s like we’re almost better divorced.”
Wiz Khalifa told Playboy Magazine that while he was sad about the breakup, he had made his peace with it. Wiz Khalifa said that the divorce was a blessing in disguise for him. He said:
“I feel like not being in a relationship helped me a lot. I learned how to be present where I need to be present. I’d been present in the relationship but at that age, and with what was going on, it just wasn’t right for me. It helps to walk away sometimes, even though it was super hard.”
