Button on tableview cell is not working - swift

I have a button on my custom tableview cell that is showing the users name. When you click on it, you should be taken to his/her profile but nothing happens?

Here is my custom tableview cell class (commentsTableViewCell.swift):

import UIKit

protocol commentsTableViewCellDelegate {
func namesIsTapped(cell: commentsTableViewCell)

class commentsTableViewCell: UITableViewCell {

@IBOutlet weak var nameButton: UIButton!
@IBOutlet weak var commentLabel: UILabel!
@IBOutlet weak var profilePic: UIImageView!
@IBOutlet weak var dateLabel: UILabel!
@IBOutlet weak var uidLabel: UILabel!

var delegate: commentsTableViewCellDelegate?

override func awakeFromNib() {
// Initialization code

override func setSelected(selected: Bool, animated: Bool) {
super.setSelected(selected, animated: animated)

// Configure the view for the selected state

@IBAction func nameIsTapped(sender: AnyObject) {
//4. call delegate method
//check delegate is not nil
if let _ = delegate {
} else {
print("Delegate is \(delegate)")


Here is the important part of commentsTableViewController.swift:

class commentsTableViewController: UITableViewController, commentsTableViewCellDelegate, UITextViewDelegate {

@IBOutlet weak var commentLabel: UITextView!

@IBOutlet weak var theLabel: UILabel!

var dataGotten = "Nothing"
var updates = [CommentSweet]()

func namesIsTapped(cell: commentsTableViewCell) {
//Get the indexpath of cell where button was tapped
//let indexPath = self.tableView.indexPathForCell(cell)

let allDataSend = cell.nameButton.titleLabel?.text!
self.performSegueWithIdentifier("toDetailtableViewController", sender: allDataSend)


override func prepareForSegue(segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: AnyObject?) {
if segue.identifier == "toDetailtableViewController" {
if let nextVC = segue.destinationViewController as? theProfileTableViewController {
nextVC.viaSegue = sender! as! String


override func viewDidLoad() {


Kindly set the delegate to self.

In cellforRowIndexPath

commentsTableViewCell.delegate = self

Where commentsTableViewCell is the custom UITableViewCell object
