Setting text for buttons not working

I am trying to set the text for the usernameButton, likesButton, and commentsButton like so:

self.usernameButton.titleLabel.text = _photo[@"user"][@"username"];
self.likesButton.titleLabel.text = _photo[@"likes"][@"count"];
self.commentsButton.titleLabel.text = _photo[@"comments"][@"count"];

The data is correct, but the button text just simply isn't showing up! What am I missing?
